About Us

Welcome to Made by Real Hippies™

Many years ago my nephew Chuck took me to a Grateful Dead show at Autzen Stadium in Eugene, Oregon.  Wow, what a spectacle! The music and environment were like nothing I had yet experienced.  I was amazed at all the colorful tie-dyed art being sold in the parking lots.  Some years later, that became me, making tie-dye shirts and selling them at shows.

About 4 years ago, I took up golfing regularly with a membership at Diamond Woods Golf Course, not far from where I now live in Veneta. I decided to make myself some golf shirts to look stylish on the course.  People loved them and always recognized me.

More recently, I saw pro golfers in PGA tournaments wearing tie-dyed golf shirts. But they weren’t Made By Real Hippies!! 😊  This brought me the idea to branch out from selling only t-shirts at markets and festivals and bring my craft to the golf world.

It’s been a few years now since I’ve been creating and selling golf polos in my booth.  The feedback has been tremendous and I am now expanding my line and launching this website to bring my craft to golfers everywhere, not just in Oregon.

My tie-dye shirts and accessories are hand-crafted and created in small batches.  This ensures that each one is unique, just like you are.  The prices include free shipping within the United States (including Alaska and Hawaii). We also ship to Canada for a flat rate.

Enjoy flying your Freak Flag by proudly wearing your Made By Real Hippies™ golf gear.  We hope you love our clothing and accessories and get many compliments on your purchases.
